Prayer stands as a key component of a Christian’s life. When a Christian prays they share their gratefulness, reverence, thoughts, concerns, and needs with the Eternal Father. Even non-Christians talk to God at times in their lives. However, prayer represents only one side of communication with God. Men need to let God talk. Unfortunately, the wide majority of the world refuses to give God the opportunity. If they would let Him talk, they would be much better equipped for the lives that they have been given.
Those who give God the chance to talk to them learn:
- God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1).
- God does not listen to the prayer of the sinner (Isaiah 59:1-2).
- There exists only one way to heaven, not many (John 14:6).
- Few people find their way into eternal life, the majority find only destruction (Matthew 7:13-14).
- Faith only does not save (James 2:17).
- A Christian’s life was created in Christ for good works (Ephesians2:10).
- Those who disobey the truth will meet the wrath of God (Romans 2:7-8).
- God does not wish anyone to perish, but gives them time to choose repentance (2 Peter 3:9).
- Man can understand the Will of God (Ephesians 3:4).
- God requires man to study His Truth (2 Timothy 2:15).
- The truth of God is to be shared with all creation (Mark 16:15).
- The Love of God is that man keeps his commandments (I John 5:3).
Christians to whom God talks demonstrate a far better understanding of their life purpose than others. How can a person know for certain if God has talked to them? Is it an emotion or feeling? Will they see visions or dreams? No. Outside of the reminder of creation, God talks to man only in one way today. He talks to man when they listen to His Word, the Bible. The best way of letting God talk is picking up the Bible and reading. How often does God talk to you? Do you schedule time each day for him to talk? If you haven’t taken the time before, no better time exists to start than today. He wants to talk to you soon and often! Let him share with you the knowledge which pertains to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3-4).
